In case you notice a major increase in the traffic to your Internet site and if after you look into the visitor statistics it turns out that it comes from locations across the world or from other servers, your website is more than likely being attacked by an automatic bot. Such pieces of software go through random websites aiming to log in to their administration area using a brute-force attack or to leave spam comments under every article where such an option is provided. Unfortunately, this is something quite common these days, but if you know the IP addresses from which the attacks come, you'll be able to block them, so the bots will be unable to access your website in any way. Naturally, you can block IPs even if you allow only people from certain countries to access your site.
